The Remedy

I close my mouth and listen

to words unspoken

they shout louder than silence.

 

Dissolve on my tongue

like bitter pills

I am reluctant to swallow.

 

I take the remedy

like a worm in my gut

eating me inside out.

 

You might thank me

for what I didn’t say

if you knew how it felt

to feel.
